What is resin art?


Beautiful and unique hand-created objects of art made by Christine Donovan. Fluid epoxy resin is pigmented and moved using a blow torch and/or heat gun, before hardening into its final form. A selection is available for purchase at the studio, with some pieces being re-purposed from found objects -- a great way to breathe new life into a piece rather than throwing it away!




When can I pick up my finished pottery?


Your creation will be available to take home in 7 days, after it is carefully fired in our kiln.
